31 July 2011 | by (the Doomed Megalopolis of Blasphemous Technoids) – See all my reviews

Michael Ironside stars in yet another bland, uninspired mildly erotic crime flick with unimaginative neo-noir touches (the man apparently did a lot of those during the nineties, e.g. "Black Ice" aka "A Passion For Murder", "Point Of Impact" aka "Spanish Rose", etc.). Detective Rick Fender (Ironside) & his partner Palatzo (Vlasta Vrana) are staking out the apartment of blonde femme fatale Rachel (Susan Almgren) because she's the girlfriend of crime lord Carlos Hernandez (Neil Kroetsch). Things get a little complicated when Fender finds out Rachel is also dating Nickels (Christopher Bondy), a cop and ex-friend/partner of him. "Complicated" isn't exactly the right word here, since the plot at hand is straightforward and simplistic. With an amount of heroine stashed at the apartment, can Rachel be trusted? That's basically the main question the story thrives on. Other than that, we have one shoot-out, Ms. Almgren providing some nudity and Ironside playing a good guy for a change. The final reel takes things on the road, but the film's climax isn't anything exciting either. Paul Ziller didn't exactly put things badly together, but this type of generic police thriller is strictly for fans of the genre. It simply doesn't provide anything more of interest than what you might expect from it.
